Sheriff of Monroe County

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities that any inmate worker (inside and outside), work release inmate, or sentenced inmate who leaves the facility may be required to submit to drug or alcohol testing when a staff member has reasonable suspicion that the inmate is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. However, any inmate suspected of drug use may be drug tested. Drug or alcohol testing may be conducted periodically or randomly as determined by detention personnel.

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all personnel.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Programs Services Director.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Drug Testing

The Programs Services Director/designee will be responsible for urinalysis collection and control as follows:

The collection of a urine specimen shall be observed by the Programs Services Director/designee who is the same gender as the inmate. The Programs Services Director/designee is to continuously observe the inmate from a frontal or side view to ensure that the inmate giving the specimen has no device containing urine or other means to contaminate the specimen.

The inmate shall provide at least four (4) fluid ounces to ensure sufficient quantity for testing.

If an inmate alleges an inability to produce a specimen, a reasonable delay period may be granted. The inmate must remain under observation during this period.

Drug testing will be done by following any and all instructions listed on pre-packaged test kits or by a qualified operator if the testing is done on an urinalysis machine. The container shall be closed tightly. If the sample is to be sent to a lab, a seal shall be place on the container that both the observer and the inmate signs. If the seal is broken, the sample is to be considered compromised and a new sample will be required.

The Programs Services Director/designee shall maintain control of the specimen to ensure proper chain-of-custody, and this shall be documented on a Chain of Custody Form.

The Programs Services Director/designee will test each work release inmate at least once per week. Inmate workers and work release inmates may be randomly tested at any time. If an inmate tests positive, a second test will be performed using the same urine specimen. If the second test is negative, then a third test shall be performed using the same urine specimen. A third test is not to be conducted if both the first and second test results were positive. Both positive and negative results, or the refusal to provide a urine specimen, shall be noted on the Chain of Custody Form and the Drug/Alcohol Test Result Form.

If the inmate tested positive or refused to provide a specimen, that inmate shall be removed from work release or inmate worker status and be placed in lockdown immediately, and a Disciplinary Report shall be written. A copy of the Drug/Alcohol Test Result Form and Chain of Custody Form shall be attached to the Disciplinary Report.

Alcohol Testing - Non-Urine Testing/ Breathalizer

The Intake/Release (I/R) Sergeant/Deputy will test each work release inmate for alcohol use upon the inmate's return from his or her scheduled absence from the facility by utilizing an intoxolizer machine. Also, any inmate that smells of alcohol will be tested. Inmate workers may be tested for alcohol use at any time.

Inmate workers, work release, and sentenced inmates may be tested for alcohol use by using a urinalysis machine.

Both positive and negative readings will be noted on the Drug/Alcohol Test Result Form along with the level of alcohol registered on positive readings.

NOTE: A positive reading is any reading from the intoxolizer equipment in excess of

.001.

If the inmate's test is positive, the inmate will be segregated from other inmates and retested two more times with a 15 minute period between

tests. All test results shall be indicated on the Drug/Alcohol Test Results Form and the Chain of Custody Form.

If the inmate tested positive or refused to take a breathalizer test, that inmate shall be removed from work release or inmate worker status and be placed in lockdown immediately, and a Disciplinary Report shall be written. A copy of the Drug/Alcohol Test Result Form shall be attached to the Disciplinary Report.

Drug/Alcohol Test Result Form and Chain of Custody Form

The original of the Drug/Alcohol Test Result Form shall be forward to Classification to be filed in the inmate's folder on all inmates except work release inmates. The original form on work release inmates shall be forwarded to the Programs Services Division for filing with the inmate's work release folder and a copy sent to the Classification Division for filing in the inmate's classification folder. The Inmate Services Sergeant will maintain the original Chain of Custody paperwork.

Work Release Inmates

Forward a copy of any Disciplinary Report along with a copy of the Drug/Alcohol Test Result Form to the Programs Services Division on ALL work release inmates that test positive or refuse to provide a specimen or take a breathalizer test. Forward the original Chain of Custody Form to the Programs Services Division separate from the Disciplinary Report and copy of the Drug/Alcohol Test Result Form.

There is no need for pre-authorization from the Programs Services Director/designee or command staff to remove an inmate from work release or inmate worker status for alcohol or drug use.

Fair Market Value Audit

Sheriff of Monroe County

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities to allow inmates to purchase commissary items for their use at prices that don't exceed the fair market value for comparable items sold in the community. [FCAC 11.04]

SCOPE:

This directive applies to the contracted commissary company and the Programs Services Director.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Programs Services Director.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

The Programs Services Director will ensure that at least once per year, the contract commissary vendor hires an outside agency to conduct the required annual commissary fair market value audit.

The agency conducting the audit will take the commissary list and select four stores in the area. They will check the prices on the commissary list against the store prices that coincide with the selected items. If none of the selected stores carry a particular item, but it is

sold in the Florida Keys, the agency conducting the audit will give us the price from that store. If it is a specialized product that is not sold in individual sizes, not available in the Florida Keys, or is a pre-priced item like greeting cards or postage stamps, the agency will note this on the audit.

When the audit is completed, a memo will be generated explaining the process, the stores selected, the price of items at each store, and the outcome of the audit. The contract commissary vendor shall send a copy of this memo and audit to the Programs Services Director, Major of the Bureau of Corrections, Operations Commander, and the Corrections’ Accreditation Office.

Fair Market Value

Commissary prices shall not exceed the fair market value for comparable items sold in the community. [FCAC 11.04]

The Programs Services Director will contact the commissary vendor and ensure that all commissary prices that exceed fair market value are lowered or the items are removed from the commissary store list.
